Now that fall is here, it’s the perfect time to prepare the outside of your home with fall decorations. Sprucing up your replacement windows and doors with some simple and unique designs can be the perfect way to kick off the season and get in the mood for scarves, sweaters and pumpkin spice lattes.
Enhance your curb appeal this year with these fun décor projects that are easy, fresh and on-trend:
Project #1: Corn Husk Garland
This DIY will add fantastic curb appeal to your home’s windows or doors, depending on where you would like to hang the garland. Wherever you end up putting it, all this project takes is a few easy steps: decide how long you want the rope (outlining your windows or door) with a few extra inches to get a droopy effect, and stick corn husks to the rope with a hot glue gun. Hang your new garland to give prominence to your home access points!
Project #2: Door Wreath
Mirror the warm, fall colors and incorporate them into a DIY wreath to display on your door. The project requires a wooden stick wreath, burlap, artificial fall foliage, scissors and a glue gun. Here is the process: Cut the burlap into four 4x4-inch squares. Then, fold and glue the burlap squares throughout the wreath while gluing foliage in between the burlap sections.
Project #3: Welcome Sign
Add warmth to your home this fall with a blackboard “Welcome” or “Happy Fall” sign by your entry. Remind passersby what the season is really about and draw attention toward your festive fall entryway.
While preparing for fall with great DIY outdoor décor projects is an easy way to get into the season spirit, don’t forget to prepare your replacement doors and windows for the cooler weather, too. They might look fantastic, but if your doors and windows are aged or unprepared for the impending winter weather, they could let in cold drafts and leave you feeling chilly in the upcoming months.
